Hon. E. B. RYCKMAN (Minister of National Revenue):
Mr. Speaker, I am not
acquainted with the particulars of the subject to which the hon. member refers, but if he has reference to the boats of the preventive service I must tell him that this matter is now under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. However, I can say that the greatest consideration is being given to the matter of taking care of those who have been in the service, and I'have no doubt that it is
the intention of the police to employ those men who can be employed. However, there may be cases where no work can be given and it may happen that many men who have given good service to the crown will have to pass out of the service.
